Fans of Cartoon Network’s hit show, Ben 10, will soon be able to experience the excitement in 5D at IMG Worlds of Adventure, the indoor Dubai theme park which is scheduled to open later this year.

The theme park developer has revealed further details about a 5D Ben 10 Cinema that will be featured in its 230,000 square foot Cartoon Network Zone.

The 240-seat attraction aims to accommodate up to 1,200 guests per hour with an exclusive 10 minute original 3D movie that will see Ben and Rook guide guests for their first day as new recruits, culminating in an epic face-off with evil villain Khyber.

The movie script for Ben 10’s newest adventure has been developed exclusively for IMG Worlds of Adventure, with ride features including scent, water, leg ticklers, air blasts, wind, and motion seats to bring the experience to life. 

Lennard Otto, general manager, IMG Worlds of Adventure, said: “We are always excited to be able to reveal new details on IMG Worlds of Adventure’s attractions. Ben 10 is a viewer favourite on Cartoon Network, and bringing Ben’s adventures to life in 5D will create a whole new experience for fans.

“IMG Worlds of Adventure is continuing with a phase of positive momentum, and I look forward to disclosing more attraction updates in the near future.”

Tarek Mounir, Turner Broadcasting’s general manager of Turkey, Middle East and Africa added: “We are delighted that fans of the perennially popular Ben 10 will be able to see him in 5D for the first time. The show is a mega hit with kids and families across the region and this cinematic offer promises to elevate the excitement around our much loved alien-morphing boy hero.”

Set to welcome more than 20,000 visitors per day, the 1.5 million square foot destination recently announced a number of other key updates including a partnership with Novo Cinemas, 20 planned retail outlets, as well as 28 unique food and beverage offerings.

The majority of the rides have arrived in Dubai and are in the process of being installed.
